BEST FOOTPRINT CALCULATORS
Sit down... with your family and use each of these excellent calculators to assess your water and carbon footprint. Write down your numbers. Then click on the links that each website provides and decide which set of actions you can commit to this week or this year. Some are simple behavior changes. Some are bigger decisions. Get started.
Next Step… Share these calculators, what you learned, and what actions you are pursuing with other groups. For example: Green Team or Environmental Club, ASB Student Council, PTSA, Key Club, National Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America, and others. Share the Calculators with teachers in courses that might benefit from this kind of impact research.
